Dinner and a movie while the kids are at a Parents Night Out event at our gym. Going out without the kids in tow is always a great
time break. No interruptions. No potty talk. No farting. No burping. No fights over food. No movies involving talking cartoon trains, cars, or little ponies. No potential embarrassing moments of one child screaming because the other child invaded their air space. Just quiet time.
If you ever see one of these Parent Nights Out events, do it. Our gym has these supervised events quarterly from 6-10pm on a Saturday night. There’s a church on Allisonville Road that has the Girl Scouts babysitting the kids one Saturday every couple of months. Most of the parent nights I’ve seen have been around Valentine’s Day and Christmas. If you are not sure where these are going on in your area, Google it or ask a happy parent. Trust me, they will know.
Hope all is well. Still going strong.
Today at lunch, I walked a couple miles on the Monon Trail. If you live in Indy, this is a hidden treasure. The nice thing about a lunch walk, not as many people on the trail.
I took a treat yourself day for Mothers Day and I cooked dinner. I didn’t go crazy, but I left the plan a bit. I am feeling it today.
I hope your Lose The Moobs Challenge is going well.
Take Care and Be Awesome.
How is your Lose The Moobs Challenge going?
Had a fun weekend. There was soooo much to do. It was a full day, Free Comic Book Day, Star Wars event at the Indiana State Museum, and Cinco De Mayo party. The kids really loved the free comic book day. MaM was on the search for an unicorn comic book. The Fox was good with anything. That’s the beauty of a four year old mind. They go with the flow. They are just happy to be involved.
The first comic book store we hit was Carnival Comics, on Keystone. First thing we asked when we walked in the door was “Do you have any unicorn comics?” A phrase I never thought would ever come out of my mouth. At least with people who do not follow me on Twitter. The guy behind the counter, who looked nothing like the comic book store guy on The Simpson’s, said no, but I may have something else. This was something MaM was ecstatic to hear.
This place had a large selection of free comics. There was Batman ans Superman and many others I had never heard of. The kids loved looking over the selection. Each person was limitied to four comic books. So that meant The Fox got five comic books and MaM got seven. As long as she got more comic books than The Fox, she was happy.
The second shop we visited was in Castleton, Downtown Comics. There was a line outside the door stretching all the way past the three neighboring stores. That was a little too long for me. There were a couple of people walking around in costume. Batman, Robin, Poison Ivy, and Cat Woman. MaM’s first reaction was “That’s Cat Woman, she’s evil.”. That’s when MaM’s world got rocked. Cat Woman walked up to Bat Man to get a picture with some people. MaM froze when this happened. I not sure what was going on through her head, but she didn’t like it. I think she wanted Bat Man to do something to her.
When we got home, the kids couldn’t wait to run into the house with their comic books to show their mom.
It was a fun day. I’m lucky that I got to spend it with them.
Today is day five of my Lose The Moobs Challange. Other than a small tooth ache, I feel pretty good. Had a little soda on Friday. That is my cheat day. I strongly recommend you have a cheat day and not to get too crazy with that. Did a little snacking at a party last night, but I am feeling better. I don’t feel a hunger crave. I think I am running a little ahead of schedule on the weight loss. Yesterday, I was down 3.4 pounds. I think that could have been due to the elimination of the soda. Just a short update on my progress. If you want to join, follow this Facebook Group, Be FIT Crew.

Thanks for reading.
Seriously, my kids wants to play the only sport I sucked at (the most) as a kid.
Me teaching my kids how to play baseball looks exactly like that VW ad in which the dad is doing the same and throwing like a girl. No, not the one where they all talk like they’re Jamaican. But, more like this one- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjTQV6CjAPE
